Coming back to life....slowly......but surely....

 I brought home a very unwelcome visitor from Richmond......a nasty chest/head cold!!! I pretty much slept for two days last week (not really sure what's worse...the cold...or the medicine to treat it that tends to "knock" me out). I've started to try essential oils ( my daughter swears by them, though she had the "crud" when we visited). So, I've had Immunity diffusing into my family room for a week now, so hopefully a preventative for the future.

I started to feel better over the weekend but energy level was still pretty low. What to do??? Why sit quietly, listen to a Harry Potter book on CD and stitch!!! I got two more in the Chalk series stitched, September and October. Only two more to go! Now I have to start deciding on how best to finish--I have a couple ideas but need to work out what will work best.

I used some glow in the dark blending filament on this one--I hope it works!

Lots to catch up on, so I will keep this short.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Glad you are feeling better. Great job on the chalk pieces. The glow in the dark floss was a great idea!

  2. We are too much alike....I had the same bug on the way to Nashville, in Nashville and I brought it home. But, like you, I am feeling a little bit better. Hope you are back to good health soon

  3. Love the chalk finishes. Big, fat, bummer about being ill.

  4. Sorry you have been sick, Stasi! Glad you are feeling better! Way to go on getting September and October finished. Have a good week!

  5. Glad you are feeling better. Sorry to tell you but the remnants will hang around for about three weeks.

  6. Hear Stasi
    Sorry to here that you were poorly...but glad to know that you are starting to feel better and that you picked up your stitching again
    Wishing you a full recovery

  7. Oh the crud... maybe that is what I had... not a cold, no stuffy nose or sore throat... not the nausea ... but a cough that took my head off and made my chest sore and my body ache. All I did all weekend was barely keep my eyes open...You have more to show for your weekend than me but it still a crappy way to spend the weekend. Hope this week finds us both feeling better.

    I'm impressed with your stitching... I couldn't focus enough to pick up a needle! Looking forward to seeing how you finish these.

  8. Did you know that you can shorten your urls with AdFly and get dollars from every visitor to your short links.
